    I hope the theme park has either Peach's Castle or Castle Town in it.

    I know I am probably not the target market but this ranks very low on the list of tourist traps I am likely to partake in.

    Few years ago I posted a theme park idea (should I sue them ? lol)
    A Metroid game using virtual reality and augmented reality projection.
    You move in a real environment build especially for it (alien planets, real round doors, etc.), wearing a full HUD helmet like Samus uses but instead of seeing only your life and weapon you also see enemies and all added element on it.

    AR FPS already exists, but I don't know if it were developed more than university tests.
    I know It looks like utopia, but how knows what could be done in few years with AR/Google glasses.

    Nintendo: if you ever make this, please understand! invite me ;)


    edit:
    Other people thought it would be good idea for a theme park too :
    There are some good idea on that forum.
    Mario kart (obviously!)
    Star fox roller coaster
    Luigi's mansion
    A Zelda dungeon
    etc.


    Post your idea here too.
    What do you think Nintendo will create?

    Lemme guess Nintendo themed theme park = 55% Mario, 20% Pokémon, 15% Zelda, 10% Fire Emblem, Kirby and Pikmin and maybe, just maybe 1 person in a Samus suit.

    ...If we're lucky.

    *Sigh* I wish they would do more with F-Zero, there is so much unexplored potential with that series. F-Zero has a sort of Marvel x Star Wars setting and I'd love to see an F-Zero game with a sandbox super hero game like story mode (with racing still heavily involved of course). Do we even know if Captain Falcon's gun shoots lasers or bullets? Or is it just a toy gun he carries around since he was a kid?

    If I wanted to be bored out of my skull I would visit whatever speciality museum there is in a given location.

    But Nintendo Land was not even good. But that means the theme parks are gonna be.. giant Mario Party fields where you must roll the dice to move forward and collect shiny things from others so you can pay Nintendo for letting you out again! :ohnoes:

    Me too! I really really would love if they made like a scale model of peach's castle from Mario 64. Doors with the number stars needed to go through it. Maybe turn it into a like a game and have each room have some arcade games or things to win tokens and the tokens are stars to unlock other rooms. Oh my god, im nearly 30 but i would still love that! LOL

    Would love to try it out if they'd have Mario Kart with items, i.e, the items would obviously be digital so no harm to the actual drivers. :P

    You're really scrapping the bottom of the barrel. lol
